That is the clutch slave cylinder. You should be able to pick up a rebuild kit for it at your local parts store for less than $10. You should be able to find instructions for taking it out in the online BGB, it's not that tough. Once it's reassembled and you've got your motor mount sorted out again yes, you will have clutch pressure.

....remember to bleed the clutch.

I would just buy a new one. I found out where my local Toyota dealership sources their parts from and picked up a slave cylinder directly from their store. It was about $35.

Just to be overly technical... you have a clutch fluid leak, not a transmission leak.

Buy the clutch slave cylinder new, find out what made it fail like this, then replace it and bolt it down properly. The last step is to bleed the system. A shop would be able to do this easily and may save you some headache.

When you bleed the slave cylinder...use a MityVac? you will be done in 15 minutes...rather than a 2 hour exercise in futility trying to do in manually.
I did mine the old fashioned way in ~30 mins. (once i figured out what i was doing wrong, see *)

1. Flush the system completly
2. Pump with your foot ~20 times , or untill slight pressure in pedal.
*3. With pressure built and the pedal down , open the valve and push the lever coming from the tranny back into the slave cylinder. Close valve (This will remove all air in the slave)
4. Grab ahold of the pedal with your hand and pump it as fast as you can for about ~30 seconds , or untill your arm feels like goo. Bleed. Repeat 2 or 3 times.
5. Repeat #4. but dont bleed off the preasure.


Save yourself about 40 bucks too.

* - This is where i went wrong , i was pumping with my foot but getting nothing, did this for about an hour. Tried this step and voila . worked.

If you buy a new slave cylinder, you might as well buy a new master cylinder too (the same goes for doing the rebuilt kit). Once you do that, you clutch pedal will feel different. It'll have more feel, and won't feel so vague.

It's nice.

I used dot-3 or 4 (thinking 4). Comes in a big bottle (had it laying around) i only used about 1/4 of hte bottle. the master cylinder is under the the platic in the front ( i belive) its on the far left , might have to take off the brace to get to it. MityVac can be had at autozone, but its not the same name , look for a pistol grip / water hose spray looking thing with a gauge on the top. ~40 bucks? i think , i never really looked.
